Agra: The first open heart surgery in Uttar Pradesh under the ambitious Ayushman Bharat project has been performed here on Saturday.

Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Agra district, Mukesh Vats said Devendra, 50, from Mainpuri, was the first beneficiary of the project.

He was operated in the Pushpanjali Hospital by a team of doctors including Atul Gupta and Dinesh Jain.

PM Narendra Modi rolled out the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PMJAY)-Ayushman Bharat in Ranchi in September and termed it a "game-changer initiative to serve the poor".

"PMJAY-Ayushman Bharat is the biggest government-sponsored healthcare scheme in the world. The number of beneficiaries is almost equal to the population of Canada, Mexico and the US taken together," Modi said.
